What-a-coinkidink!

I just want to share something that happened to me a few days ago :P

I have been riding for 9+ years, and a week or so ago, I had my first lesson at a new stables to see which horse I would ride there and the groups and such. Well, my trainer decided to put me on a horse named 'Wizard'. As it happens, I have a friend who had a horse named Wizard, but sold him because he was too much for them to handle, and I had ridden him a couple of times about...6 years ago. So I told this to my trainer, and she asked who it was, so I told her the persons name, and as it turns out, this is that horse! They bought him from my friend, and now, the horse I rode once 6 years ago, is my lesson horse!

He sure is a bit different though, but still has that nippy-ness about him(as in, he likes top nudge you and nibble on you).

I just thought it was so interesting how some things (or horses, for that matter) come around again after so long! I can't get over that this is that same horse.

Has anyone else had a story like this to tell? :] I'd love to hear them!

That's so cool!

Now for my own story, let's see...

When it came time for me to sell my first horse (so, so sad) we put an ad up for him on craigslist. We received a phone call from the people who used to own him as a baby! They asked to come out and see him, and of course we said yes. They had him from age 2 to age 5! They brought out old pictures of him as a baby, and man, he looked the same! It was so cool for them to see him after all those years, because he was 17 when they came to see him.

Haha. Cool!

Did you sell him to them? Or did they just want to show the pictures?

Love when that happens! :)

When I was about 10 I took lessons on an awesome horse named Rocky. He was for sale and I wanted him SO badly! Well, he was sold and for one reason or another we changed barns.

Six years later I started volunteering at a therapeautic riding facility and during training we went around meeting the horses. There was the cutest sorrel quarter horse with a star who happened to be named Rocky. I asked who donated him to the barn and by gosh, it was the same Rocky!! =)

Unfortunately he had to be put down a year ago, but it was so awesome being able to work with him again! Especially for such an awesome cause!

That's so cool wildberry! And RTG- they didn't buy him, they just wanted to see their Boo boy (his name was Boo) all grown up! We ended up selling him to a nice couple who had several rescue horses and they just wanted to use him for trails, and my horsey loved trails, so it was perfect. They also promised him a forever home, so he gets to live out his life with the other horses!

About 5 years ago, a friend of mine called and said a friend of hers was in over her head with a serious problem horse and she was wondering if I was interested. The mare was in training at a local dressage barn and the trainer told the people to get rid of the horse, as it would never make a decent riding horse. I went to check out the mare, who was pushy, invasive, bucked constantly undersaddle, but very cute. My husband and I had just moved into a new house, and I asked the owners about the horse. They said that she was given to them and said the street that the horse lived on. I said "really, that's where I just moved, which house?" They said "last one on the right, with all the queen palms in front". Interestingly enough, it was the same house we just moved in. Keep in mind this is not a small horse community by any means.

Anyway, the mare moved in with us and right back to the same property that she came from. The neighbors said the mare had been so whacko that they wouldn't let their children near her in the past, she was unpredictable and neurotic. Five years later, with a little bit of work, she is my best lesson horse, showing successfully with small children, and doing everything from cow work to parades. I ran into her old owner a few weeks ago, who couldn't believe it was the same "untrainable" horse she sold me years ago. I always thought it was funny that she went right back where she came from.

These are kool storyies! Lol

I kinda have one, but its not as heartwarming as the rest :)

Well I have this friend, her name is Tess, she used to lease a grey (one of those white-grey horses) and this was before I got my to beasties so I thought it was really kool to have a friend that was horse crazy too!

Anyway she stopped leasing the horse (his name was badger) and when I went to have a look at ducky (my second horse that I own) I saw him in his stall!

I thought that it was pretty kool to see him after hearing about him like 2 or 3 years before I saw him.
